My time management skills are not the best, and I am always looking for new ways to stay on track. Working with a to-do list seemed to be a good place to start.
Part of me wants to be a free-spirit and do things in my own time, but since I have been using a to-do list, I feel more energetic and l am meeting more of my goals.
Here are 3 reasons why you need a to-do list:
You may have many things you want to accomplish in a day, but some are more important than others. When you write out your to-do list, you’ll see which tasks need to be done first, and determine how long it will take you to finish your list.
It’s hard to remember everything you want to accomplish and working your to-do list improves concentration. You’ll be less tempted to indulge in mindless tasks such as internet surfing, or checking out Facebook.
At the end of your work day, review your progress and what you accomplished. Did you finish the list, or did you run out of time? What changes could you make to improve the process? It may take a while, but continue to make changes until you find out what works best for you.
